Nuremberg Accordion Orchestra
Germany rest home concert¡Una gran noticia! Nos complace informar esta semana que algunos países de todo el mundo están comenzando a abrirse lentamente con cuidado nuevamente después de Covid-19, mientras mantienen ciertas regulaciones de distanciamiento social y estándares de higiene para la seguridad.

Esta semana desde Alemania, la Orquesta de Acordeón de Nuremberg Willi Münch e. V. (imagen de arriba) comenzará los ensayos esta semana. Georg Hettmann, vicepresidente de DHV, también anunció que su orquesta volvería a los ensayos con el distanciamiento apropiado.

También esta semana, Maxi Lörcher, de 8 años, entretuvo a los residentes del Novita Senior Center en Pfaffenhofen, Baden-Württemberg con su maestro Chrissi Pfeifer, para deleite de su audiencia (foto a la izquierda).

Las Orquestas de Acordeón de North Shore en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda (imagen a continuación) han anunciado planes de que comenzarán sus ensayos semanales el próximo mes (después de sus vacaciones escolares de julio).

Algunas áreas de los EE. UU. Comienzan a abrirse nuevamente. En otras áreas, los acordeonistas están ofreciendo actuaciones callejeras y conciertos de autocine.

También estamos comenzando a recibir notificaciones de eventos futuros que se llevarán a cabo este año en varios países, incluidos Francia, Sudáfrica, el Reino Unido y Bielorrusia, así que revise esta sección de las Noticias semanales esta semana y asista a estos eventos si es posible.

Envíe un correo electrónico a: cjmusic@outlook.co.nz con detalles de sus próximos ensayos o presentaciones en vivo para que podamos dejar que los acordeonistas y entusiastas de todo el mundo conozcan esta noticia positiva sobre nuestro querido instrumento.

¡Es emocionante ver que el mundo del acordeón comienza a abrirse lentamente de nuevo!

Jigsaw
CathedralVideo de arriba: Esta semana el video clip de "Anantango" compuesto por Gorka Hermosa e interpretado por Armando Rizzo ganó el "Festival de Cine Independiente del Golfo de Nápoles", celebrado en Nápoles, Italia.

El acordeonista belga Lieke Opt`Roodt ha creado un rompecabezas de la pieza de Gorka Hermosa titulada "Anantango".

"Anantango" fue escrito en 2003 y es una pieza triste sobre un amor perdido llamado Ana. El trabajo se estrenó en la Casa Encendida de Madrid en diciembre de 2003 y fue grabado por Christine Rossi en su CD "Gorka Hermosa: Works for Accordion". Lieke decidió hacer un rompecabezas de la pieza porque le encanta.

Además, la pieza se realizó en la Catedral de San Vito en Praga, República Checa, el 12 de junio de 2020. Se cree que esta es la primera vez que se toca el acordeón en esta Catedral.

Gorka dice que es un honor que su "Anantango" haya sido elegido para ser interpretado en la Catedral por Ladislav Horák en un dúo con el conocido violinista Jaroslav Svecený.

The Leeds International Organ Festival is part of Diocese of Leeds Music, the largest choral and keyboard teaching programme in England for children and young people.

Each week 4,500 children from across the region meet together in around 100 choral groups, and since the pandemic, these groups continue to meet online.

Diocese of Leeds Music began an organ teaching programme in 2016 under the direction of David Pipe, previously the organist of York Minster. This now has 60 children from deprived backgrounds, with a large number of boys and girls from a rich diversity of ethnic heritages learning the instrument.

2020 Coupe Mondiale, 5 - 11 October, Castro Marim - Portugal

CIA banner
Coupe Mondiale posterIt is less than 4 months before the 73rd Coupe Mondiale in Portugal will be held from 5 to 11 October in the city of Castro Marim, a splendid center of the Algarve.

There is a required review of national and international health issues, including confirmation of the date.

Almost daily contacts take place with the political side and national health requirements, that see Portugal, like the majority of European nations, emerge in this period from the first phase of the pandemic crisis.

However, it is logical that, since it is a world event, it will be necessary to fulfill all Government controls and understand the evolution of COVID 19 in other parts of the globe.

"Within the next few weeks - CIA President Mirco Patarini tells us - we will be able to outline the guidelines in detail. There is a willingness on everyone's part to create a great World Coupe Mondiale competition and festival on this occasion - by ensuring everyone is safe."
